I'm not sure if anyone except Pocketdiggers and myself are playing this tournament, but in case you were and didn't know, MG had a slight glitch. This tourney is SUPPOSED to have one free rebuy included in the cost of admission - but once you're finished the round, it won't let you do anything else. I contacted RV earlier and first they said "no it doesn't have any rebuys" and then they said "maybe it does" and I just got a confirmation now that "Yes it IS supposed to" MG is currently working on it (they said) and hope to have it working within the hour.

So if you played it and didn't get anywhere, you have another chance....!
(GO POCKETDIGGERS and win me a thousand bucks!)

All Jackpots $100k

I decided to play All Jackpots 100$k tournament instead and it is running now too. This tournament is a bit complicated because it has 10 re-buys and 3 continue-play options. In principle you could play all re-buys and continue-plays within each re-buy for a total cost of 3 x 10 x 10 = 300$! I wonder what the best strategy is in terms of buying the re-buys.

lol - yeah when you add it up....

For me I don't do a continue unless my first round got me in the top 100. And I do the rebuys if I got such a ridiculously low score the first time that I think I can do better - and if I didn't get such a low score that I'm disgusted with playing slots at ALL anymore. But I'm not an expert, I did win a $2000 tourney once but since then I've been scraping the bottom.

I advise to a continue if you have a good first round.

The Question is what is a good round ? i think between 10000 until 12000 coins and should be well for that to use the continue.

who knows whether the rounds on the re-buys will be better and it could cost you $100 to use all re-buys and then further 3 continue plays.

But equal what you will do it's always dependent from your luck.

Yep, I re-buyed until I got at least 11000 starting win box and then played through the continue options. It seems to be quite easy to get into top 300 (ALL positions 18-300 win the same 100$). The price structure is awful though because you need to get into TOP 17 to win anything more than 100$.

Hi lauram all, I get the same problems as you with the tourns, and not just the tourns to as in real play in the past i get errors every time i play thats why i dont do real play there unless i win something in there tourns.


Now just before that 100k tourn kicked off they had serious connection problems and not just for me for all.

It would off been good for me to wait for next day to play but i went anyway as i like to play when it kicks off, was lucky enough to get about $100 from the free play and ended on $337 after full time and finished fifth but dropped down to about 223rd i think when all was done.

I have now moved on from tourns at all jackpots because off those dissconects, but there own tourns bring you back and depositing if you do well.

I know feeling won a few 100 dollar tourneys as fast as saying that ive been disconnected in most of them also only to hit that continue play button take the fee and your booted right out of casino log back in and wow there is no tourney at all few min later tourney is done and you didnt stand a chance to even finish.
I did notice a huge drop in the 5 player tourneys also wanted to see for myself if
was still same set ups so last nite i played 10 in one 10 in other and didnt even come close to being in second place think i was dead last in 18 out of the 20.
And didnt get disconnected but few of those spins never stopped for some 10 seconds to 20 seconds still had lots of chips left to use and that was without hitting free spins. There has to be a better set up for all these tourneys then what they do use. maybe close site down for few hours revamp and set back up sure they will lose few players in that time slots for their money but if it makes the casino up running faster and better works well for them as well as happy players. Yes rebuys are norm only few dollars but for most that isnt the complaint as much as why bother if you cant finish or log back into your account

150K Masters at FL

Allow me please a little comment about this Tournament and sorry if i not translated all correct for your understanding and hope you know what i mean.

Also the 150K Master Final is now ended at the FL.

And also at this it gives a few things to notice if you compare it with the
100K Tournament at JPF.

It was actually fun and exciting for that to be qualified what was more simply as there in the JPF, in my opinion.

In addition there was in the Semi Finals for a good position, next to the qualification another nice bonus, so far so good.

It cost also more to use.

Only the Top 100 players should qualify for the final, but last of all one had to assess, that it suddenly was not 100 players, no it was 195 players but where they came from i don't know it.

The price pool was paradoxically also only 80K and I suppose that the rest of the 70K was the bonus price pool in the Semi Finals ?

Disappointing at the story is also, that it gave only prices for the best 25 players.

Then arrives yet that they selected a game with Thunderstruck, what very heavily makes it to come under the first 25.

These win combinations make it almost impossibly, what you are able to see also at the single reached Positions/Coins.

One had 1 free Re- Buy, and at the time (20 min) they could surely given more time because the coins was more as sufficiently also with max bet.

This game should take actually for any qualification, but for the final they could choosing another game.

In the games Tomb Raider or Thunderstruck is it so that one already must have a super run with five Wilds/Scatter to land around ahead but who has that already ?

If you are looking at the rules at this tournament then it makes no sense if you e.g. pay an entry for $1.000 with the uncertainty generally and if then to give satisfied only with a minimum of $500 and unfortunately that was not also previously well known.

But okay, i think that all had qualified and not payed these $1,000.

If I compare that now to the 100K Tournament of the JPF, my result falls out indicating that it did not be worthwhile to play this Masters generally.

I came 16th in the JF event, and won $200, which covered my costs only. My first entry was no good, but my second attempt + all continues gave me 16th.

Oddly enough, there was a promotion where top VIP players were going to win deposit bonuses, however, even though I came 16th, I didn't win one, so this suggests that the winners were ALL VIP players at Jackpot Factory.
This suggests it is pretty easy to reach VIP there.

RiverBelle is now running a similar event, and will probably be prone to similar bugs, but we might as well play the first free round and hope for a big hit.

As for the 20K weekender, that I USED to play each week, I just remembered - I have a free entry this week, so better not forget;)

Well I won that big fat $2K at a tourney at RV about a year ago and since then I haven't won squat - I mean once in awhile I get entries into other tournaments (big deal) but as far as getting any actual $$$, nothing.

Funny I did this last RV tournament first round I was at #85....second round when I finished I was #84 - I got free spins once during the 20 minute run and won something like 250 credits. I was so disgusted I didn't bother going back to check where I ended up when it was all over. As a matter of fact, I was so disgusted I didn't even go back to check where pocketdiggers ended up! ;)
